McGraw became a starter in 2000 after getting action as a back-up in 1999. In 2000 as a junior, he was a Big 12 Honorable Mention by the AP and coaches. He led the Wildcats to a Cotton Bowl victory over the Tennessee Volunteers. 2001 would be McGraw's final season, a season that Wildcats struggled to a 6-5 record, after a loss to the Syracuse Orangemen in the 2001 Insight.com Bowl.
Prior to the start of the 2005 season, McGraw was traded by the Jets to the Detroit Lions for a 7th round draft choice in the 2006 NFL Draft.
Kansas City Chiefs
On March 29, 2007, McGraw signed a two-year contract with the Kansas City Chiefs. On September 13, 2009, McGraw scored his first touchdown after blocking a punt against the Baltimore Ravens. McGraw also had an interception when the ball was tipped in the air and he caught in the endzone for a touchback. This would also lead to a 39-yard Hail Mary touchdown from Tyler Palko to Dexter McCluster. In 2011, his final year in the NFL, McGraw was awarded the Chief's Ed Block Courage Award, an award voted by his teammates for role models of inspiration, sportsmanship, and courage.
